cfp Journal of Critical Library and Information Studies
There is a call for papers for the inaugural issue of the open-access Journal of Critical Library and Information Studies, with the theme: Why is the Journal of Critical Library and Information Studies needed today? Deadline for receipt of manuscripts is December 18th, 2015 (and there are various contributions solicited e.g. research papers, reviews, interviews. The journal "addresses the need for critical discourse in library and information science and associated domains such as communication and media studies. It critically engages the cultural forms, social practices, the political economy, and the history of information and information institutions. It also seeks to broaden the methodological commitments of the field and to broaden the scope of library and information studies by applying diverse critical, trans-disciplinary, and global perspectives. The journal engages issues of social and cognitive justice and the historical and contemporary roles of documentary, information, and computational technologies in creating, mediating, surveilling, and challenging personal and social identities in cultural and political economies of power and expression." http://libraryjuicepress.com/journals/index.php/jclis/announcement/view/2 Photo by Sheila Webber, taken in Second Life, which I was demonstrating today at a Technology Enhanced Learning fest.
